Senior Risk Manager Methodology
Imagine… Rabobank’s market risk models are seen as state of the art by the business, by the supervisors and by our competitors. With you as our Senior Risk Manager Methodology, we will achieve this together. Your expertise and ability to identify, model and measure risks for Financial Markets products will be an asset to our team.
Making a difference
Reviewing existing models and identifying improvements.
Including new risks in Rabobank’s market risk framework.
Implementing new regulatory requirements like FRTB.
Addressing supervisory findings related to the market risk models.
Working with IT to get model changes implemented in the Risk systems.
Carrying out regulatory exercises like the EBA stress test.
Working closely with other departments in the Financial Markets domain.
An example of our previous market risk projects that made a difference: We implemented the market risk framework for linear interest rate & FX derivatives in Rabobank’s new Front-to-Back-to-Risk system Murex . The result: Due to innovative use of spread curve methodology in the new system traders and senior management get much better insight in the market risks in the trading books and can manage these better.
With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our Market Risk Methodology team brings talented people together to develop and maintain Rabobank’s market risk framework. With you as a Senior Risk Manager Methodology the team will consist of 12 diverse colleagues in a variety of roles, including:
Niels Zagers (Senior Risk Manager Methodology): “It is a pleasure to work in an international team with motivated and skilled experts. Our task is first of all to provide sound methodologies for risk monitoring and management. We are also responsible for capital calculations and we are the point of contact for the regulator for Market Risk. In this team regulatory requirements, quantitative models, financial products, (big) data, and number crunching all come together. If you enjoy that like me, you will enjoy helping us to design and implement our risk framework, but even more it will be rewarding to see how your work is used in daily practice.”
Melissa Faizurachmi-Siegers (Senior Risk Manager Methodology): “My current role gives me the opportunity to be involved in various bank-wide projects which also gives me better understanding of a trade flow from front to back office. In my daily work, I am working closely with people from various departments within the bank including Risk IT, regional risk managers, product control, Financial Engineering and business (Market/Treasury). The role also gives exposure to various systems used in the bank. It combines quantitative skill, products and market knowledge. “
Camille Bollengier (Medior Risk Manager Methodology): “I really enjoy working in the Market Risk Methodolody team as the team is international, young and dynamic, the subjects we cover are varied (calibration of new scenarios, implementation of new regulations, system testing, ...) and we collaborate with people from different departments. As a Medior / Senior, you also have the opportunity to share your knowledge with Junior members and help them grow. The position offers a good mix of financial subjects and IT knowledge, in a good atmosphere.”
